Hollywood Park will trim its thoroughbred purses by 3.8 percent for the upcoming Spring and Summer Meets, management announced Friday.

The cutback is the result of the California energy crisis and a sluggish economy, track officials said.

To help conserve energy, Hollywood Park moved its Friday night program to the afternoons.
